    I know I speak for ALL of us at Chester.

    Thank you Carol, what you did was way beyond the call of duty.

    Found event.
    Researched event.
    Researched Chester.
    Perfect host.
    Acted as guide to Chester.

    This really was a meet to go down in FUN history. They don't get any better.

    Thank you is not enough.

    When can we book for next year ?

    We echo the other sentiments!
    What a fantastic first experience for us, many thanks for making it possible.
    We enjoyed your excellent organisation, the location and of course meeting and making new funster friends.
    Also a big THANKS to you all for all your help and advice, it was VERY much appreciated (and needed). It made a great weekend very memorable

    John and Di

    Thank you Carol, Eddie, Dinah and Brian. It was great :thumb:

    Thanks as well to everyone for being as friendly and welcoming as ever (something the miserable old @!**er in the caravan opposite me now could learn from :RollEyes:).

    I was surprised by how many Funster 'vans were there...when I got to the security tent to ask for directions to MHFun, I needn't have bothered. You couldn't miss the :Smile: flags!

    Have a good last night all those still there...and safe journeys tomorrow.

    A great time with new & old friends. Excellent marshalling (thanks for keeping my cake despite being a day late) :thanks2:

    Nearly beat young Katie at pie rolling:Blush:

    Got an Easter egg from Movan:thumb:

    Enjoyed the 24 mile round trip - only took a month to save for the fuel:Rofl1:

    Brilliant weather - again organised by the marshalls.

    I can say no more other than to agree with the words of the great :notworthy:Hilldwellers :notworthy:

    Never mind the meet, what a great line for FUN adverts, banners etc.

    You'll not get £25 subs though.

    A big thank you to all the Funsters for helping us with our first Marshalling meet, a special big thank you to Brian & Dinah (Hilldweller) for all the help and support, and Barbara for the brilliant FUN cake she made us. It was a privilege to host it and thank you to everyone joining us. Carol & Eddie.

    Thanks

    Pleased to know that you appreciated us eating your food and drinking your booze, Carol !

    It was great putting faces to names - well, some of them anyway.

    Thanks to you and Eddie for your generous hospitality and for hosting a really good rally. Thanks also to your hilldwelling assistants. (Mrs made me very welcome and Mr was not quite as scary as he looks.)

    We would like to add a huge thanks to Carol,Eddie,Brian and Dinah. The Chester welcome packs and cycle routes Carol provided were invaluable. We had a fabulous time which was summed up by the security chap who said " you 2 look like a couple of chilled out things,chilling out on a chilledout day"
    Look foward to the next Carol Extravaganza!

    Now chilling in the drizzle with the Druids:shout:

    We left the rally field at 3:30am, I hope we didn't wake anyone:BigGrin: We had breakfast in the sun 200 miles south of Chester.

    Well what can I say, this was a superb meet. Its in an excellent location and Carol and Eddie were great hosts, their local knowledge benefited us all and their smile was infectious. Book us in for next year Carol:BigGrin::thumb:

    I have just uploaded 120 photos from this great weekend, take a look
